Forum: GratefulDead Subject: apprehension

Well, it's over and I am done with politics for good. For many it was a special day. I only hope what happened yesterday to an innocent child is not a sign of things to come.

I picked up my 10 year old stepdaughter from elementary school where they had a mock election. Her family cast mixed votes for both candidates, she unfortunately did not vote correctly in her class. She was called a racist, a 10 year old, by a fellow classmate for not voting for obama. Aside from the initial rage I felt and sadness for her, the luke warm reception of the principle caused me great concern. The young black boy who said that obviously got it from his parents and that is a shame. So much for coming together I suppose. If he said it, how many more thought it but didn't say it?

I honestly thought this would be the election that proved beyond a reasonable doubt that everyone has opportunity in this country but honestly it seems to me that this election has brought out the worst from everyone. From the knuckleheads who spraypainted racial slurs I am not allowed to say on a black guy's house down the road from here, to the incident at the school. From the hours I wasted talking to walls and insults and ugliness that ensued. The rest of the world is celebrating but only half the country is. Some people have a feeling of ominous uncertainty about our future from rights of ownership to freedom of speech (so called fairness doctine).

The world is watching...

I MUST AGREE.

THIS ELECTION WAS ALL ABOUT COLOR.

IF OBAMAS OPPONENT WAS BLACK THE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN

50-50 FOR SURE.
WE WERE ALL SCREWED FROM THE BEGINNING.
THE WORLD IS SO SCREWED UP, NOBODY CAN FIX IT.
GOD BLESS US ALL

Don't worry, it's not like the right wing has taken over and a greedfest will ensue!

We have no need for the "love" of the "Christian Right" and its corrupt overlords like Newt and the "oppressed Christian" Tom DeLay, and supporting actors like Larry Craig and Mark Foley. The Right is the most responsible for putting this country in peril.

The only ominous uncertainty to fear is ominous uncertainty itself. Hope can override fear. As Dylan said, if you can't lend a hand get out of the way. You'll be drowned with Pharaoh's army otherwise.

Those who think this was about color are CLUELESS. They're only amplifying what's in their own minds.

Too bad they could never get in the mood for a Dead show and explore the circus of the mind like in "The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao."
